wise board

Happy New Year and welcome to winter in Cleveland! Let me ask you: are you bundled up or wearing that short sleeve top right now that you thought of saving for a Spring Break trip? If you are anything like me you’re not sure how to dress based on our Northeast Ohio weather as you head out the door for work! Honestly, that is just one of the things that makes Cleveland so great – the unpredictable spirit (and weather) that runs throughout our city! One thing that I know for sure to count on in 2016 is the team in place planning events for our WISE membership!

I want to share with you that there is such a wealth of knowledge and fabulous energy from both board members and planning committees making the wheels turn for our organization. The team organizing awesome activities and events throughout the year for WISE Cleveland is providing our members and friends of the organization opportunities to get up close and personal with key executives, city leaders and talented individuals helping shape our industry from January thru June. In the last newsletter I encouraged our membership and colleagues to attend the great fall programming events at Progressive Field, The 9 and our annual holiday party at Cibero Privato. I saw familiar faces and enjoyed getting to know new individuals. And now in this New Year I ask you, are you challenging yourself in educating or staying current in trends? Did you miss our fall programming and can you commit to attending at least two upcoming after work events in 2016? WISE Cleveland programming dates are locked and we are loaded with resources that we want our members and friends to activate!

What’s holding you back? Grab the winter coat or that pair of peep toe shoes (depending on the day and the weather) and join me – and the women who have planned a plethora of activity for this extra special year our town is having!
